LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - HBO's "True Blood" has managed to hit yet another series high.

Sunday night's episode was seen by 4.3 million viewers, the latest record for the vampire drama, which began its second season in June.

HBO's freshman comedy "Hung" (3.4 million) as well as the veteran hipster series "Entourage" (3.3 million) had their second-highest numbers of the season. HBO recently renewed all three shows for another campaign.

Also Sunday, the season finale of "Kendra" on E! averaged 2.1 million viewers, the network's highest-rated first-season finale since "The Anna Nicole Show."

On TLC, the Monday night return of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was seen by 4.2 million viewers. That's a steep 61% drop from the show's last outing -- June's "breakup episode," which was the program's most-watched ever -- but it marked a rebound after the show's pre-breakup trend, which had taken "Jon & Kate" down to about 3 million.

Broadcast had a sluggish night Monday: CBS won with repeats.
